Are This Year's Canuck Team the Best Hockey Team Ever?

I have been watching hockey since I was born. It is imprinted on me like a beer label. I still dream I am playing the game once in a while and I have not played in years.



The old Frog teams were pretty fucking good. The Canadian and Russian teams were shit hot in '72. Messier's Oilers shone like crazy diamonds. The New York Rangers' 94 squad and the Canuck team they beat in the final were two of the best ever. I wish I could favourably compare my Avalanche Cup winning teams to these teams but they were a notch or two below them.

This year's Canuck team looks to be every bit as good as those legendary teams. Grace, skill, toughness, coaching, humour - they have it all. All they have to do is win six more, motherfuckers.

The NY Islnders 1980-1985 were the equal of any of those teams. Even though they played in the shithole known as Nassau Coliseum.
Trottier, Bossy, Bourne, Gilles,Potvin, Nystrom, Morrow, and Billy fucking Smith in goal.

Me thinks Nazz is right.

And don't forget that little guy that wore the cereal box on his head.

You have to consider who the Islanders beat to win their Cups. The Flyers, North Stars, Canucks and even the then whipper-snapping Oilers were not much.
